The Making Of

Brecht Evens

The Making Of is the follow-up to international sensation Brecht Evens’s Eisner-nominated debut, The Wrong Place. With lush watercolors and his characteristic wit, Evens details the fumbling, amateurish foibles of the participants of a small art festival in the Flemish countryside.

    The brightness of Brecht Evens’ art is the first thing you’ll notice when you look at The Making Of. It’s so beautiful, it was hard for me to stop flipping through pages and actually begin reading the story. Once I did, I was almost immediately taken by the humor, well-paced storytelling and dynamic characters, each uniquely flawed in the most charming ways.
    The plot roughly follows a group of people creating an art show, though each of them explain to the reader throughout the story the unimportance of the actual event and offer up an alternative meaning to be perceived through the story.
    Really fun read!

    I immediately fell in love with Evens’ style of drawing, and noticed that when I read this book in public, more people than usual were curious than usual to approach me and ask what I was reading. I really enjoyed seeing a bunch of strangers and weirdos come together to work on a massive art project together to learn about the importance of the creative process. Endearing characters!
